Trampled by Turtles

It’s a string stampede as Trampled by Turtles creates an acoustic sound that “seeps deeply into our pores and permeates our core until their riffs merge with our pulse” (The Washington Post). Dave Simonett (guitar, vocals), Tim Saxhaug (bass, vocals), Dave Carroll (banjo, vocals), Erik Berry (mandolin) and Ryan Young (fiddle, vocals) – all of whom jammed in rock and punk before unplugging their instruments – have delivered a half dozen albums of unbridled bluegrass mayhem, or as Esquire put it, “Supercharged songs with a hooky playfulness and white-knuckle power.”

Snowbird's Oktoberfest began in 1973, when two men costumed in leather lederhosen, inspired by the towering mountains that reminded them of their homeland, came to Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort to play their accordions and sing in their native German tongue. Now – attracting over 60,000 visitors annually – Oktoberfest has grown to become one of the largest festivals in Utah. Oktoberfest includes Oktoberfest Halle featuring the tastes of Bavaria with entertainment from local and national German bands and yodelers.
